it tells us very much, if anything about tomorrow. and like you said, at the end of the piece, it's 700,000 votes that will be cast in new hampshire tomorrow. i don't think, though, it will be quite as close as people think it will be. what we've seen in the national polls and also in the state polls is a little bit of an uptick for obama. i think that the democrats are cautiously optimistic about tomorrow. and mitt romney is hoping that everything breaks in his favor. but that's a long shot. it's a real long shot. so i think at this hour, going into tomorrow, the democrats have a little bit of wind at their back. >> ben smith, what i thought was interesting about that result in dixville notch, the reality is, all the independents had voted for barack obama and not mitt romney. is that an ominous sign for mitt romney? >> i'm not sure i want to read a whole lot into that. i think the absolute nightmare scenario for this election is what you just saw there, something close to a tie, something that does not resolve tomorrow and that is something that is something both campaigns are genuine

today is i think those of us who are democrats, and i am, would be having a much calmer day if it wasn't for our concerns about voter suppression. the only way that they win if they win is going to be because we've had voters standing in line for seven or eight hours in florida. we've had the secretary of state of ohio making last-minute decisions that are very questionable. you know, i heard our colleague andrea mitchell today call these lines to vote a poll tax and that's what we should all be talking about. if it was not for their efforts to suppress our vote, we would be sipping tea and talking about cricket today, but these things concern me and i think we're going to have a conversation after, i hope, the president is re-elected about how to guarantee people equal protection of their voting rights. >> it is absolutely staggering. joining us now is professor michael eric dyson who is in chicago. professor dyson, messrs. romney and ryan suggest re-electing the president will threaten the judeo-christian foundations of america, as you know, but isn't the truth that if we don't re-el

a little lift. think of us as a good bra, you know, just a little lift where you need it. that's what we are. >>> here's something great that happened that matt organized on friday night that we've been telling you about, the telethon, the concert. it was a tremendous success, you guys. for everybody who phoned in and gave money, $23 million raised. >> isn't that amazing? >> it rocked. so many great acts. billy joel, bruce springsteen. >> matt has those guys on speed dial. it was in a short time frame, he called billy joel, bruce springsteen. >> mary j. blige. jimmy fallon was singing "under the boardwalk." his back-up singers were billy joel, bruce springsteen. take a listen. ♪ down by the shore ♪ down by the sea ♪ on a blanket with my baby where i'll be ♪ ♪ under the boardwalk ♪ we'll be having some fun ♪ under the boardwalk >> the boss is in the back, you can see him. >> it was really terrific. >> by the way, can i say something? there are a lot of storm victims out there who you cannot believe the spirit and resilience. i went with some friends to staten island, and thi
and entertain. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. the eve of the election is upon us. and the market is confused. dazed and confused about what to do, and confused about what matters if president obama is re-elected or not. the indecision over the outcome played out once again in today's quiet session. the dow gained 19 points. s&p rallied. nasdaq advanced .59%. tonight i want to show you what really matters in stocks, why they might go up or down independent of the election. don't worry, i'm going to give you some picks for an upset by governor romney, although i'm on record thinking it's most likely not going to go the governor's way. but i bow to popular demand. first up, let's figure out how stocks have really done under president obama, and i'm going to use a prism that i haven't seen anyone else use, the five-year lookback. you cannot use the inauguration day as the starting point. there's too much priced in at that point. almost every stock is higher, so it's irrelevant. the s&p is up 75% from inauguration. we need to go back to when the great recession was just about to begin. it became
